FreeFlow alpha released!

I am excited to announce that FreeFlow, a composition based layout engine for collections of data that +Richard Ratmansky and I worked on for the last 6 months is now on Github, released under the Apache 2.0 license.

The repo can be found at: https://github.com/Comcast/FreeFlow

Freeflow is inspired by UICollectionView in iOS and Spark framework in Apache Flex.

FreeFlow allows you to create Layouts pretty easily in Android and allows you to create beautiful transitions as the layouts are swapped. The video below shows the demo "Artbook" app that loads data from Dribbble and lays it out in different layouts.

Hopefully the project README gives you some idea oh how it works. You can download the demo apk from:
https://github.com/Comcast/FreeFlow/releases

At this time, the framework should be considered alpha. There are parts that may not be optimized or apis that could be better. I am hoping to get some feedback (and even better: pull requests) on the code as of right now. Hopefully folks who know a lot more about Android than us can point us to things that we can improve.
